    During the last years of his life, Ansel Adams pored over the tens of thousands of negatives he'd carefully stored since his teens, setting aside 70 he determined would stand as his greatest works of art.


    This March 14, 2014 photo shows a photo exhibit entitled, "In Focus: Ansel Adams" at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Toward the end of his life, photographer Ansel Adams pored over thousands of negatives he'd carefully kept since his teens and set aside 70 that he considered his best works of art. He offered to sell sets of 25, with strings attached: Adams would select 10 and let buyers choose the other 15; the images printed by Adams himself could never be resold, only left to a museum. The few dozen who made the cut included the late Leonard and Marjorie Vernon, whose collection was given to the J. Paul Getty Museum and is the centerpiece of "In Focus: Ansel Adams."

    For years, Downtown Plaza shoppers have strolled past works from noted local artists. When the mall gets knocked down for an arena, where will the art go?


    This ceramic harlequin is one of a pair of sculptures in Yoshio Taylor’s “Spherical Discourse,” which is at the east entrance of Downtown Plaza. Taylor, a Cosumnes River College art instructor, said he hopes to find a new site for his pair of sculptures, possibly near Community Center Theater or Crocker Art Museum.

    “Balancing Act,” a bronze sculpture by Tony Natsoulas, is one of the works in Downtown Plaza that the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission hopes to save when part of the mall is torn down to make way for the new Kings arena. And an architecture preservation group is asking that a few of the plaza’s terra cotta wall panels, top, be preserved.
